Jeffrey Court crackle glass tile mosaic-how to cut

I'm in the middle of doing a backsplash out of Jefffrey Court Benevolent Blend Mosaic tile, which is a combination of slate, and crackled glass over ceramic. The layer of crackle glass is very thin, and attempting to cut it with a standard wet saw blade results in the glass wanting to chip out back to where it last crackled. The same goes with using a diamond dremel blade (not quite as bad though). I'm about to go up and over the window, which will require a lot of cuts, but also have the time constraint of the owners come back into town tomorrow night (i.e.: can't order anything, or drive to the nearest big city for a new blade). Any suggestions? I read in several places on the forum that crazy glue was a good way to go....just put it on your cut line, and then scrape off the excess afterwards?? Thanks for any suggestions, I really appreciate it!

My Dad used to do stained glass windows. Sometimes he would cutcertain types of glass that appeared to have cracks in it. He would take masking tape and cover the glass piece front and back, then make his cut. He would also use a little oil on the blade.

Sorry if it's not much help, saw your post while asking a question myslef. good luck

Try a hand cutter.
I just did too crackle back splashes in a row. Neither were that brand tile, but cuts came out clean except u cuts around outlets. Outlet covers took care of that though.
Tape may work. Have fun.
